As the year begins, we hope we will be able to put the pandemic behind us. In
the past we have held major events for the community including an annual
health fair, our "Generations In Style" Fashion Show, and programs on topics
ranging from technology updates to financial options to tips on remaining
at home. Each of our special events have been attended by over 350 people.
Out of concern for the safety and health of our attendees, we have currently
postponed our 2022 events. We will keep you apprised as to when they will
The Senior News will continue to be published in order to bring you information
and news on areas of concern and interest. We will also keep a special focus on property tax relief and what you can expect in 2022.
Most of us want to continue to stay in our homes and communities but property
taxes are driving us away. Taking advantage of New Jersey's Property Tax Relief
programs can stretch our dollars. Who qualifies? Are there special programs for seniors? To increase awareness of what is available for homeowners, back in the fall of 2019 the Senior Council gave a series of talks throughout our communities. The presentation clarified the current New Jersey property tax relief options and covered the income requirements, the application processes and the deadlines for the various programs including:
* Senior Freeze
* Homestead Benefit (formerly Homestead Rebate)
* Senior Citizens Annual Property Tax Deduction
* Property Tax Deductions for Veterans (or their spouses)
* NJ State Income Tax Relief for Homeowners and Renters
We anticipate that these programs will again be renewed in the upcoming NJ State Budget. We have updated the handout about what you can expect in 2022 based on past years.
